We've had rather nasty weather the first part of this week so I have stayed away from the nest in the fern. I was watching Howard and Harriet as I was potting up some plants and when they flew away I took a peek. They now have five! According to the Cornell Lab of Ornithology House Finches have from 3 to 5 eggs. I am assuming Harriet will begin to sit and stay on her nest now.
Learn along with me; we'll see.
